Description

Pot : urn : collared This is a tall vessel with a distinct collar and shoulder. The rim is flat but slightly dished and with a squared-off internal edge. This plus the upper plane of the rim are decorated with oblique whipped-cord impressions. A double line of cord impressions begins the external decoration on the collar, followed by a filled lozenge with blank background. There is an unusual cord impressed herring-bone motif in the horizontal rows which frame the lozenge pattern. The lozenges are filled with whipped-cord obliquely arranged. Below this is a further zone of oblique whipped-cord motif. The collar has a very exaggerated overhang. The ware is compact and well smoothed over and is of an orange/ochre colour.
